I''ve never had a headache.

I don't know how I've avoided it. And I'm 50 now. I've certainly had my share of stress and challenges just like anyone else. But I've never had a headache.

It's the wierdest thing. I get tons of colds, I get an upset stomach at the drop of a hat (which is my "stress" symptom) and I've had the flue a few times. I have exzema, I get cold sores, etc. etc. as well as a few other more serious illnesses throughout my life - but I never, ever get headaches.

I have a good friend who gets horrible migraines, and they make her completely miserable. Not just having them, but knowing that they are lurking out there somewhere, ready to strike at any moment.

But even regular, run of the mill headaches are lost on me...

You people who don't get headaches should really ask your local university research hospital where to donate your body after your die so it can be studied. There must be something about your genetics or physiological expression that could be used to help those who suffer tremendously from headaches.

Or, if you're American, there must be some way that valuable medical research can be conducted at taxpayer expense and then used to extort billions of dollars from suffering citizens.

[quote]well an ice cream headache is somewhat momentary pain in my throat from the cold ice cream, not a pain in my head.

But that, by definition, isn't an "ice cream headache" (a/k/a "brain freeze"). I don't know what that is, and I've never experienced an "ice cream sore throat".

An ice cream headache describes a brief, sharp, stabbing pain right between the eyes and it's caused by something cold moving across the roof of the mouth.

Maybe you just have a tough brain. Or maybe it's calloused.

by Anonymousreply 3806/01/2011

I've had very mild headaches (more like a dull ache) which are usually hydration-related, but only very painful headaches two or three times in my life. Well, except for hangovers.

I also rarely get sick and when I do it lasts no more than a day. Other than food poisoning (which I've had a few times), the last time I can say that I've had the flu (sickness lasting more than a day) was when I was 12 - 18 years ago. And I've never had a shot. I get a cold about once a year, and it's typically over in two or three days.

My partner, meanwhile, gets sick quite a bit. He can't understand why I don't.

My dad was like you. He never had a headache in his life. He lived to 87, but he did have severely blocked carotid arteries, that gave him no symptoms except one time he started to see circles. I immediately took him to his ophthalmologist, thinking it was his glaucoma and the doctor knew this was a symptom of carotid artery disease. My dad went for a Doppler and it showed a 97% blockage on one side and 70% on the other. He had surgery to clear one side and before he had a chance to have the other side cleared he died of a stroke. Through all of this he never had a headache.

Consider yourself lucky OP. I've been getting headaches go as long as I can remember, often they are migraines accompanied by vomiting, light sensitivity, disruptions in smelling and taste, mood swings and general misery. The good news is I am pretty healthy and MRI and CT scans show nothing like tumors or aneurysms. I usually vomit with a migraine so I have to take acetaminophen in suppository form. If it is a regular headache, ibuprofen or aspirin. I don't have any better result with prescription migraine medications, though I did love my fiorecet back in the day.

So you never have taken Excedrin.

When I was a kid you used to be able to take aspirin and not die. Now you get the AIDS bread syndrome.

Of course you could also eat peanut butter and were smart enough to realize mommy's pills don't taste good.

And you drank water out of the hose. And you rode a bike without that douche bag helmet. And you could eat candy from strangers. And Penn State was a place to get a blow job.

by Anonymousreply 6907/14/2012

Imitrex makes me feel weird, it's no miracle for me. I took a dose and had a panic attack when my neck and head started getting a rush of pins and needles. My MD then gave me something called 'Maxalt MLT' which melts on the tongue with a creamy mint taste which makes me throw up. So, I'm screwed. I just ride it out, hoping the acetaminophen slowly melting in my rectum will bring relief.

by Anonymousreply 7007/14/2012

I rarely get headaches and typically only get them in association with a hangover. I've tried to get a brain freeze but it's never happened. I keep Excedrin migraine around the house for when I'm tired and need to get some cleaning done.

The answer to "Why don't I get headaches?" is very simple, if you are a believer and believe in GOD and read his word, not just go to your local church to listen to your pastor Blarney you to death.

If you read the word GOD allows some things to befall man so that he may be able to understand certain situations ungodly people are in.

Say that there is a poor ungodly person, and GOD sends a rich (not just in Spirit, but also in wealth) person to "witness" to him/her. That would most likely go south because that 'rich' person has no idea how that other person is feeling and cannot relate in any valid way.

Like Paul and other Apostles, GOD gives his Christian people different paths to live in so that they can relate to the lost and show them how to pull through.

So that being said. What if a fellow 'non-headache' christian was to convince an ungodly soul 'with headaches' that he/she could pull through?

It is things like these that ungodly people cannot grasp, and some ignorant 'Fake' Christians, or just Christians who haven't thought or seen this in the Good Word (The New King James Version).

You people with no headaches bless GOD your creator for his loving kindness and do not think you hold some kind of power. And to the rest with headaches, bless GOD for his loving kindness even though the pain can be horrible. GOD is holding us by the hand and allows every event in our life to make us a better Christian.

The only time when I get a headache is when I haven't slept in ca. 24 hours and then go to sleep for ca. ten hours straight. When I wake up the headache is only minor, but it steadily increases during the day. A recent medical study claims that during sleep the brain is literally 'washed' in order to get rid of all the toxins that have build up during the day, so this - and the dehydration of the brain - may be one of the reasons why someone experiences a headache.

Apparently he was saving up all those years for the one big headache of his life. It lasted four months, solid, and for the last six weeks any time the oxymorphone started to wear off he screamed at the top of his lungs in agony. It was terrible. By the end he had no vocal cords left, so as he died is was just like a horrible, long hiss.

Before that big headache I never had a headache before.

Not having headaches is not good because your level of tolerance is very low and when the headaches will start happening you won't be able to cope with them.
